Wimbledon Fights Court Invaders

The Observer notes that officials at Wimbledon are concerned about “unwelcome intrusions” from birds, mice and… streakers.

It discusses last year’s court streaker who interrupted the women’s quarter final.

Last year, Maria Sharapova was startled by a streaker who leapt on to Centre Court during her quarter-final against Elena Dementieva.
She averted her gaze as he cart-wheeled naked in front of her before being bundled off court by security guards who wrapped him in a red blanket.
“I didn’t want to look at all the details,” Sharapova said.
But when told that some women spectators had been impressed by his physique, she replied: “Maybe next time I’ll take a look.”
